We’ll cut to the chase: It’s more important than ever to equip yourself with a face mask that will help keep you and your loved ones protected. But for those of us with smaller heads, we know that face masks are not a one-size-fits-all accessory. In fact, it’s actually really friggin’ hard to track one down that doesn’t completely engulf our tiny noggins.

But never fear, we did some digging and uncovered everything from N95 and KN95s (the creme de la creme of masks according to healthcare professionals) to reusable, fabric masks—all of which will keep you safe and fit like a dream. Here are six of our findings backed by enthusiastic reviewers.

12 Best Masks for Glasses That Are Actually Comfortable to Wear

1. rafi Nova Adult Performance Mask

Before she discovered the above, Quint was making good use of these cloth masks that come in an array of fun colors and better yet, five different sizes that range from extra-small to extra-large. “I love the Rafi Nova performance series which has little toggles so you can tighten it up at the chin,” she explains. And while, yes, N95s and KN95s are the most effective at filtering out harmful particles, any mask is better than no mask, so if you’d prefer to stick with a fabric option—or better yet, double up on them—these are a prime small-headed pick.

2. maskc Black Kf94 Masks

We aren’t the only ones who adore Maskc’s variety of disposable face masks (Jennifer Lopez has been spotted stepping out in these bad boys, FYI), and it turns out that they’re a solid pick for those with small heads, too. These KF94s span 7.5- by 2.5-inches wide, which is a snug size for people with narrow face shapes. Reviewers adore their multi-layer protection, adjustable noseband and soft chin cover that doesn’t feel itchy on the skin. “These are nice for smaller headed adults,” one reviewer writes. “Finally a mask with zero gaps,” says another. “It’s nice and lightweight and has a flattering shape too. More breathable, so all around my most comfortable, safer mask.”

3. vida Fda Listed Adult Mask With Kn95 Protection

Since the CDC announced that N95 and KN95s are *it* in the mask world, we’ve noticed a trend of shoppers gravitating toward these Vida ones. They come in tons of colors (everything from lilac and teal to your sleek and standard black) and four different sizes, the most pertinent in this case being their children’s size that’s ideal for kiddos ages 10 and up—or, you guessed it, grown adults with small heads. “This is the best mask ever,” says one buyer. “I have a small face and it fits perfectly.” Oh, and once you’re done with them, you can mail them back to Vida who then recycles them. Eco-friendly and keeping us safe? We’ll take 100, please!

Another cloth mask that’s ideal for tiny heads? These moisture-wicking ones from Milwaukee. They’re equipped with three separate layers and built with a structured design that keeps the cloth away from the wearer’s mouth. Other notable features include antimicrobial tech that keeps odor-causing bacteria at bay, a flexible nosebridge, adjustable ear loops and water-resistant material. “I wish I would have had this mask a year ago,” says one reviewer. “The first thing I liked was the fit—though it is adjustable, I found that it fits my face well with no adjustment but still leaves room to breathe.” ‘Nuff said.

Cozy fabric, an adjustable fit and specifically made with smaller heads in mind, Bloch’s reusable masks have amassed more than 7,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. “Very comfy and they fit a small female face well,” explains one buyer. “I'm a petite woman with a small face, and most masks I've tried are too large,” writes another. “Some of those other masks are workable but uncomfortable, and some are just comical. This one fits perfectly to my face.”
